The hair salon

Sometimes, a team has to split hairs to meet success.... An icebreaker can also help along the way! This ideal workshop starter typically gets the group in the right mood.
Let the team share a good laugh with the “Hair Salon” Template. First of all, team members pick a quirky hairdo from the wig bar. Next is the hairstyle-based brainstorm phase. The aim is to come up with as many hair salon names as possible to stimulate collective creativity!

Immediately get the team in the right mindset

All head to Board Hybrid for a relaxing session at the hairsalon

This interactive workspace can definitely accommodate all the team members. Board Hybrid is what is known as a whiteboard: an unlimited digital workspace based on visual communication. All kinds of shapes, images, texts and documents can be shared hassle-free on the board.
With its built-in videoconferencing tool, Live, it can accommodate all the teammembers at once. Everyone can interact without being physically present in the same place.
To start off the activity, everyone posts a picture (preferably a full-faceportrait), entering their name in the caption field.

Treat yourself to a funny hairstyle

Everyone picks a hairstyle that fits their mood of the day from the wig bar. There’s a wig for every taste. Don’t be shy and don’t worry about what you look like! From platinum blonde to electric blue, indulge yourself with an unusualcolor. Pick any haircut you like: long or short, an impeccable bun like Cinderella’s, sensible plats like Laura Ingalls, a surfer style and many more...
Once you’ve chosen your favorite wig from the selection of 12, copy it then place it over your picture. Resize the image and adapt it to your face for a perfect result!
And for a bit of extra fun with this icebreaker, why not ask everyone to pick awig for their neighbor? Sure to get laughs all round!
